Mohammed Rafi – Duets – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 26
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘भ’ – भैया रे भैया नैया छूआओ ना’ ॰ ॰ ॰

– – – –

चंदा का दिल टूट गया
के रोने लगे हैं सितारे ॰ ॰ ॰ 

कुछ ऐसा ही हुआ था उस दिन, जिस दिन तुम्हारे कूच की खबर आई थी॰ ॰ ॰

[Something as such, happened that fateful day, when the news of you departure came. . .]

– – – –

Today’s song is a wonderfully crafted song. And is euqally well performed and filmed.

The scenario is familiar – Shri Ram, accompanied by Sita ji and Lakshman, are travelling on foot, after departing from Ayodhya, for their sojourn of 14 years in the forest. They come to Shringverpur on the banks of river Ganga. To cross the river, Shri Ram requests the boatman to ferry them in a boat. Kevat, the boatman, at first refuses to ferry them. He has heard of the incident at the deserted ashram of Gautam Rishi, where by the mere touch of the dust from the feet of the Lord, Sati Ahilya who had been cast into stone by the curse of her husband, Gautam Rishi, came to life once again. Kevat cites that incident, and expresses apprehension that if by the touch of the dust from the feet of the Lord, his boat made of wood, would also come to life in the form of a lady, then what would become of him. Not just that he would lose his only source of income, and the only occupation he knows, he would have the additional burden of another member added to the family.

Much to the chagrin of Lakshman, Kevat dithers and dilly-dallies. And then he agrees on one condition – that the Lord should permit him to wash His feet, ostensibly to wash off any dust from the divine feet, and only then allow the trio to step on to his boat.

This event from the Ramayan is well known. It is so beautifully presented here in this song. The film is ‘Bharat Milap’ from 1965. The verses of this song are penned by Bharat Vyas, and the music is from the mind of Vasant Desai. The words are so beautifully crafted and the verses are embellished – अलंकृत is the word. The melodic construction is also very pleasing. It is a quick paced song, based on the folk music of the rural North India. The singing voices are of Rafi Sb and Kamal Barot.

On screen, the song is performed by Sunder, and a lady actor I am not able to identify and name. I request knowledgeable readers and friends to please help make the identification. The duo is accompanied by other members of the village community, and the song is presented as a group dance.
[Note: Thanks to Pramod ji and Prakash ji, the lady dancers are identified as Jeevankala, Manjula, Sheela Ramchandra, Aruna.]

The other main players in this scene are Shri Ram, Sita ji and Lakshman. Indrani Mukherjee plays the role of Devi Sita. As per IMDB listing of cast and crew, Anand Ashish Kumar plays the role of Ram. As far as Lakshman, I am not able to identify and name the actor playing that role.
[Note: Thanks to Pramod ji for correction to the name of he actor in the role of Ram.]

All in all, a very lilting, very pleasing and a very energetic presentation. Lovely song.

ASAD 10th Anniversary Celebrations – 18
———————————————————————

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 70 #
——————————————

Congratulations to Atul ji and all team members on this tenth anniversary of this wonderful musical blog!!! Our beloved blog – ASAD – has completed ten years now and as expected the celebration has to be bigger and bigger.  And other than this being a great achievement, it’s also the time to gear up for the next bigger celebrations i.e. 15000 posts, 20000 next and more. . .

For this special occasion, and as it was expected of, all members were asked to share their joy and happiness through write ups and songs. So, when the ‘circular’ 😊 to this effect was received in mail and the deadline was given I started to look for those special subjects close to heart, which can be shared here on the blog with songs on this special occasion. I started thinking over the main reason for me to be associated with this blog – which is nostalgia and specifically related to the movies of the ‘seventies’, and the years when I was growing.

When my association with this blog started, and I started sending contribution for lyrics, they were mainly the songs which have over the years been in my memory since childhood and/or those which I have been looking for all the years during which I grown up – songs that used to be there and were listened to during those years – the seventies. . . and continuing to the initial years of the ‘eighties’. . .

There was something special there in those years. I think that the decade of seventies, from the point of view of ‘History of Hindi Cinema’ was a very important decade since it has many things happening in those years. But since it is subject of a different post I will not go into the detail (which I wish to write) in today’s article here.

Next, I started thinking about the movies which made news or hits or were popular in those years, then the stars, and the directors who ruled the roost and enthral the audiences with their charisma and talent. . .  If we look back now on this decade the very first thing that comes to our mind is the rise of Superstardom of Rajesh Khanna. But then in those years I was not the fan of Rajesh Khanna which I became much in the later years of the decade and in the starting years of the eighties.

And the movie watching years those bring back memories for me I think are 1973 (when I was five years old) to 1980 or 1981 to 1982 till I get into tenth standard. These years are very ‘nostalgic’ years for me I think, because many memories of movies and songs for me are from these years. So, what were the specialities of these years – ‘multi starrer movies’, ‘lost and found’ stories, ‘revenge stories’, ‘mythological movies too’, then we have ‘movies with dacoits looting the ‘gaon’ and the poor villagers’, etc. We were not the fan of any actor or actresses, we just loved to watch the movies whatever be the cast.

In my childhood, movies were the biggest entertainment other than outdoor sports, plays, then orchestras, radio and then there were movies. I vaguely remember that I always use to think the stars acting in movies were from a different planet and not like us. Then I used to think how a person who dies in a movie came back again in another movie?😊 And it took me sometime to understand the reality and come to know that the ‘stars’ are actually normal human beings like us.

Movies were the biggest fascination for us then and may be for many like me. From buying tickets for a movie and getting entry into the theatre and then the darkness surrounding gradually and starting the ‘newsreel’ everything was mesmerizing. Sometimes if we got delayed we had to enter in the darkness and then the gate-keeper will come and guide us the way signalling with a torch. And after the ‘newsreel’ (always in black and white 😊) finally the censor certificate of the movie which we eagerly await to the titles of the movie – all fascinating and spellbinding.

Then as I have mentioned earlier we brothers used to collect the cut pieces of films of movies and try to watch them after magnifying from a small mirror (sometimes a piece of mirror) to reflect the sunlight and finally projecting on a piece of cloth (preferably white) in a room which was covered to create darkness even in a daylight outside. I also remember that there was the advertisement for the 16mm projectors in newspapers and magazines which always attracted me and I was always thinking of buying one 😊 (which was not possible and never became possible) 😊.

Reading about movies and stars in print media and discussions about movies and the personal likes and dislikes among friends/groups was almost a routine. And yes, the ‘booklets’ for the songs of the movies, though I don’t remember to have bought many but yes we used to buy them and sing the songs reading from it 😊

Every summer vacation was special and awaited because of movie watching only. It was the main attraction of the vacations as we used to travel to stay with paternal grandparents and cousins would also gather from different places and together we used to watch movies in theatres – ah, how wonderful those were the days!!!

Sometimes on Sundays or a holiday we would even watch back to back movies to utilise the time as we have to travel back to our colony around 25 kms from the district place. The today’s movie we are discussing was passed by the Censor Board on 06.04.1979 and in all possibility, I am sure that I watched it in that ‘summer vacation’ that year. We children were very crazy about watching movies and I think this continued so far till ‘Laawaaris’ (1982) where I remember to get the tickets I joined the long queue which was I think around 500 metres from the ticket window, and it was already on the road where we sat in the queue for a long time 😊.

Recollecting it now all that happened seems to be very crazy and exciting. And I had to share this one incident when I was beaten up by my father as I was disappointed and started shedding tears for not getting ticket to watch a movie as it became house full. The movie was ‘Jaani Dushman’ from 1979. It was directed by Rajkumar Kohli who has given us many multi starrer movies and I have watched many of them viz. ‘Nagin’ (1976), ‘Jaani Dushman’ (1979), ‘Naukar Biwi Ka’ (1983), ‘Raaj Tilak’ (1984), ‘Jeene Nahin Doonga’ (1984), and ‘Insaniyat Ke Dushman’-1987’. After that I think I have not watched any movies from this production house.

At first, for this post I was thinking of a song from a Manmohan Desai movie or a song from a ‘multi starrer movie’, but selected this movie because to watch it I had to first undergo my father’s fury 😊. How is that possible? Was the movie was not for children? Yes, it was not for us – children – then to watch this movie, because it was released with an ‘A’ certificate (released with restricted viewing) 😊. But, I can now guess that may be on my insistence my father may have been somehow agreed to allow us to watch the movie.

However, we could not get the tickets as the show was house full and we – me and my younger brothers were standing watching movie posters – I got disappointed and tears rolled my eyes and the next moment was darkness in front of my eyes because my father had slapped me since I started crying for watching a movie. Later on, my father called me separately and told me to go alone next day to watch the movie and don’t take my younger brothers with me since they will be frightened, as the movie was said to be a ‘HORROR’ movie 😊. Next day I watched the movie and never feel scared while watching the movie, as the movie was making news as a ‘horror’ movie or like that. I was just above eleven years old then 😊.

I don’t remember having watched this movie again after that, either on TV or in theatre. Watching a suspense thriller again doesn’t generate the same interest and thrill. However, I think I should watch it for nostalgia and to enjoy its beautiful songs again. This movie has some very good songs and so far, only two of its songs have been posted on the blog. And when I go through these two posts by Atul ji I find he also had expressed similar feelings about this movie and he had also watched it as a ‘non-adult’, but still he was elder than me then 😊.

The song I present today is a ‘happy song’ to suit our celebration mood and reviving the nostalgia. In the movie too it occurs in celebration after Bindiya Goswami’s marriage and her ‘doli’ not being looted and the ‘dulhan’ not getting killed by the ‘Jaani Dushman’ 😊. The pitcturisation of this song has some typical specialities of that period – the village, the celebration, the grandeur and the music and the multi star cast. . . And over and above all we have Sanjeev Kumar and Shatrughan Sinha in their ‘own style’ 😊 and with so many other artists present in this song. The orchestra music by Laxmikant-Pyarelal makes it very special and nostalgic to revive those memories. . .

So, let us enjoy this song and revive some ‘bhooli bisri yaadein’. . . on this special occasion 😊

And actually, in the flow of the song I was thinking,

blog nahin koi ASAD jaisa
leader nahin koi mere ‘leader’ jaisa
editor nahin koi hamaare ‘editor’ jaisa
aur ‘contributor’. . .
nahin koi hamaari team jaisa 😊

Missing Films of 1960s – 52
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

A bit of a coincidence here that the song of this series posted yesterday “O Chanda. . . Aaj Ki Raat Na Dhalna”, and today’s next song in this series, both are ‘chaand’ songs. Yesterday’s song got posted early in the morning, and later I was thinking – posting a ‘chaand’ song at sunrise time is wholly inappropriate. And so, today’s ‘chaand’ song I am bringing to you at an appropriate time in the evening – a waxing moon is in the skies.

Today’s film is ‘Bharat Milap’ from 1965. The film was produced under the banner of KP Productiond, Bombay, and the director’s name is Babubhai Mistry. The cast of actors includes Sohrab Modi, Sulochana, Ashish Kumar, Indrani Mukherjee, Leela Misra, Anand Kumar, and Mridula amongst others.

The film has seven songs, all from the pen of Bharat Vyas. Music is by Vasant Desai. Today’s song is a duet in the voices of Lata Mangeshkar and Mahendra Kapoor. Unless I am mistaken, the actors performing this song on screen are Ashish Kumar and Indrani Mukherjee. I request other knowledgeable readers to correct me in case I am in error.

The storyline of the epic ‘Ramayan’ is quite well known. After Shri Ram departs from Ayodhya to spend fourteen years as an ascetic in the woods, Bharat ji makes one attempt to bring him back. He goes to meet him at Chitrakoot. The entire portrayal in this epic is a guidance for the right things to do in life. The meeting at Chitrakoot is very significant. The various dialogues that happen here are so full of deep learnings for mortal humans, on how to conduct themselves in real life. The decision at this juncture is that Bharat ji will return to Ayodhya, and continue look after the administration of the kingdom, and take care of the family and the people. Shri Ram along with Sita ji and Lakshman ji will continue his stay away from Ayodhya, till the specified time.

Bharat ji returns with the ‘charan paduka’ (sandals) of Shri Ram, and places them on the throne of Ayodhya. And he places himself on the ground next to the throne, while administering the kingdom, asking for inspiration and guidance at every step, from the ‘charan paduka’. He further resolves that he will not stay in the palace, for the duration that Shri Ram is traveling in the woods. He also has a hut made for himself in a small village, Nandigram, next to Ayodhya, and stays there only. Even inside the hut, he does not sleep on the ground. He digs a cavity or a trench in the ground, a couple of feet deep, and he sleeps at that level. He says he will not sleep on the same ground on which Shri Ram is walking bare footed for fourteen years. He forsakes all the comforts and luxuries, and also all the pleasures and shared nearness in his own personal life. His spouse, Mandavi, stays in the palaces, but they do not share any proximity.

The tale and the teachings of ‘Ramayan’ are the best examples of personal sacrifices that individuals make for the sake of their dear ones, and for the sake of moral and uprightness in life. I may be digressing here, but I would like to briefly tell about the role of Shatrughan, the youngest of the four brothers, in these complex circumstances.

It is stated that Lakshman ji had taken a vow that he would not sleep for all the time that Shri Ram is away from home, and that he would always be standing guard for the safety and well being of his elder brother and bhabhi (sister in law). What is not well known is that even Shatrughan ji followed a similar stringent regime. All during the day, he would be assisting Bharat ji with the matters of the kingdom. And in the night, he would make one round of the kingdom, and then come and sit on a stone at the gates of the kingdom, keeping vigil, till dawn.

Taken in the right spirit, this tale is the pinnacle of a visionary and inspirational lesson. To keep the honor of a promise, all the four brothers make unparalleled sacrifices. One leaves home with the resolve to live like an ascetic in the woods, for fourteen years. Another resolves to accompany him to secure the comfort and safety of his elder brother, forsaking even sleep. The third brother declines to sit on the throne, gives up his own comforts and resolves to also live like an ascetic for the same period, albeit in his own kingdom. He also resolves to sleep in a pit below the ground, and not on the ground on which his elder brother walks barefoot. And the fourth brother, also forsakes his comforts, and sleep, keeping vigil over a kingdom which all acknowledge belongs to the eldest brother. All the four brothers forsook family life for the duration of this exile. A tale like this has no parallels anywhere in the annals of world history or literature.

This is a wonderfully crafted song, that is simultaneously moving at two levels. Both the levels are expressions of love. But one level is expressing love for a beloved spouse, and at the other level, the love being expressed is for a beloved elder brother. The expression of love in the second level is amounting to love for God Himself. Mandvi, the wife of Bharat ji, is calling out to her husband, expressing her emotions of missing him, and feeling incomplete within herself. Bharat ji is singing the same song at the same time, only that his call is directed towards Shri Ram, reminding Him that his (Bharat ji’s) life is in a precarious balance, if He does not return on time, as promised.

A lovely melody created by Vasant Desai, and a memorable song this one is.

Song – Chandrama Ja Un Se Keh De  (Bharat Milap) (1965) Singer – Lata Mangeshkar, Mahendra Kapoor, Lyrics – Bharat Vyas, MD – Vasant Desai

Lyrics

chandrama ja un se keh de
na bano itne kathor
baat takte ho gai
geeli mere palkan ki kor
chandrama ja un se keh de
na bano itne kathor
baat takte ho gai
geeli mere palkan ki kor
chandrama ja un se keh de

kehna tujh bin adhkhila
maathe ka tika hai
kehna tujh bin ye mera
sansaar pheeka hai
oo oo oo
chandrama ja un se keh de

kehna ab na seh sakoongi
vireh ki jwaala..aa
toot jaaye na kahin
meri saans ki maala
oo oo oo
chandrama ja un se keh de

ye basanti raat kaate se
nahin kat’ti
ye ghadi nishthur
ghadi bhar bhi nahin ghat’ti
un charan ki raah mein
ye nain bhatke hain
un ke darshan ke liye
ye praan atke hain

oo oo oo
chandrama ja un se keh de
na bano itne kathor
baat takte ho gai
geeli mere palkan ki kor
chandrama ja un se keh de

चंद्रमा जा उनसे कह दे
ना बनो इतने कठोर
बाट तकते हो गई
गीली मेरे पलकन की कोर
चंद्रमा जा उनसे कह दे
ना बनो इतने कठोर
बाट तकते हो गई
गीली मेरे पलकन की कोर
चंद्रमा जा उनसे कह दे

कहना तुझ बिन अधखिला
माथे का टीका है
कहना तुझ बिन ये मेरा
संसार फीका है
ओ ओ ओ
चंद्रमा जा उनसे कह दे

कहना अब ना सेह सकूँगी
विरह की ज्वाला॰॰आ
टूट जाये ना कहीं
मेरी सांस की माला
ओ ओ ओ
चंद्रमा जा उनसे कह दे

ये बसंती रात
काटे से नहीं कटती
ये घड़ी निष्ठुर
घड़ी भर नहीं घटती
उन चरण की राह में
ये नैन भटके हैं
उनके दर्शन के लिए
ये प्राण अटके हैं

ओ ओ ओ
चंद्रमा जा उनसे कह दे
ना बनो इतने कठोर
बाट तकते हो गई
गीली मेरे पलकन की कोर
चंद्रमा जा उनसे कह दे


I had heard this song as a child, but I never came to know what movie this song was from- till a few days ago.
